Norfolk, Va. - A Norfolk father says his 12-year-old daughter's mountain bike was taken off of his family's porch along Granby Street.

Charles Kimble says his daughter told him that she could not find her bike on Monday. After searching for it, he looked at video surveillance and saw a man walk onto his porch back on October 14th at around 4:00 a.m., and walk away with his daughter's mountain bike.

"That's creepy that someone just came onto your property like that, and just nonchalantly took off with something; it bothered all of us," he says. "It just blew my mind."

Kimble took action to file a report with Norfolk Police. He wants help to figure out who the man is to get results.

"I started printing out my own pictures and was about to start passing them out through the neighborhood when I remembered you guys and made a call," he says. "Somebody knows who this is."

Kimble says his first priority is to get the bike back for his daughter.

NewsChannel 3 reached out to Norfolk Police about the report. A spokesman says the case was not assigned to a detective yet, but it will be.

Anyone with information about the bike is asked to call Norfolk Police.
